Golf Mat for Backyard With Grass


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm gonna buy a mat for my backyard, it has grass.

I need help deciding.

Anyone tried the 5 STAR 3' x 5' GORILLA Commercial Driving Range Golf Mats from Martin Hall?

I wanna practice with my spike shoes on it.

Thanks

5 Star Commercial Mats are easy on the wrists and elbows while still standing up to golfers of all levels. Our Commercial Driving Range Mats are a favorite with driving ranges and country clubs nationwide!

I know nothing about the mat.  Sorry.   What I do know is that the mat will take the contour of your lawn and if you don't have your lawn rolled flat you'll find that the mat won't be flat either.   My lawn looks very nice and I get compliments from my neighbors but I've tried to put my mat on the lawn and it's like a bounce house

I use a mat similar to that one (been long enough I can remember where I got it) on my lawn and it works fine. I've practiced on it while wearing my plastic spikes. It's heavy enough that I haven't felt the mat moving under my feet. Keep in mind that, unless you move the mat frequently or pick it up when not in use, it will kill the lawn underneath.

Very true - I have a similar 5x5’ mat that I ended up needing to build a small, level platform for. My yard is unusually bumpy and poorly graded though, so ymmv.

I use a 10" x 30" Country Club Elite® Golf Mat Hitting Strip.  I dug out about 2" of soil so that it sits flush with my lawn and I just stand on the ground when I hit. But I have a 2 acre yard out in the sticks, so no one can really see where I dug it up.

I have a country club elite as well.  It's awesome.

I just bought the Monster mat. It's 5 x 5 and stupid expensive ($328). This is the same mat I've been hitting off for the last year at the range when the grass is closed. Under commercial use they have held up real well and do not leave all that green residue on your irons. I figured that this is one of those items in life where you could try and save a little and live with many regrets or buy it once for life and be satisfied.

They make a model up from this that you can peg a tee into but that cost even more. I just use one of those rubber tees that sit flush with the mat and that will hold a normal wooden tee.

Also if you can't locate locally shipping will run about $50.

I paired the mat with a Range Servant ball tray. Its rubber, not plastic, sits flush with the lip of the mat and is very heavy. It just absolutely will not move unless you move it. It holds about 50 golf balls.

@dmnoland after over a year now, are you happy with the Monster mat?  Positives and negatives?

I’ve been reviewing pretty much every popular mat out there, and just can’t come to a decision.  CCE, Monster, Fiberbuilt, TrueStrike.

@iacas I’d be interested to hear your preference on practice mats, as you’ve probably had a few over the years.  I’ve seen in your videos, it appears you have a TrueStrike and maybe another.

    • What precedent? You keep saying this but you haven’t cited examples of where a rival league won a suit against a major league for anti-trust in the US. Name the sport, the leagues involved and cite the lawsuit. Right now your devils advocacy seems just like arguing for argument sake. But you haven’t provided any concrete facts just your disdain for the PGAT.  
    • We've got LIV vs PGA Tour match play on right now and its getting intense
    • Lol I'm not even going to argue with someone who asks about another's profession as some weird condescending ego stroke. Its incredibly clear that there is prior precedent for sports leagues and anti trust violations in this exact type of situation. The density it takes to be this sure of yourself about the righteousness of the PGA Tour here is incredible. Its not black and white.
    • Day 26: 8/12/2022 I got some really good practice in today. Went to the range. Hit about 50 balls with my 6-iron. (Block Practice) How I did it was 5 balls at a time. Focusing entirely on one of three things.  Five balls focusing on a movement I'm trying to get right with my hips. Slow mo first. A little faster second. Then do it full speed with no ball. Then full speed with a ball.  The next five balls. Focused on a move I'm trying to get right in my backswing. Again, slow mo, a little faster, full speed no ball, and then full speed with a ball.  The next five balls. Focused on my hand path. Same as above. Slow mo, a little faster, full speed, then hit a ball.  Rinse and repeat.  Then I hit ten balls with the driver. I'm trying to improve my driver consistency. So, what I did was focus on a pre-shot routine and my set up. Tried to hit all 10 into an imaginary fairway.  Then I went over to the putting green and after warming up I did @iacas's "Makeable Putts Game". I scored 13 points... Not sure if that's good or bad. But I know I can do better.  Lastly, since I also want to improve my wedge play, I went over to the short game area and hit 36 different pitch shots from about 20 to about 70 yards. (Random Practice?)  I really wish I had time every day to do the practice I did today. I feel like everything I worked on are important things that can help me improve.
